Beef, chicken, pork, sausages, lamb - even vegetables - all lend themselves brilliantly to casseroling, which also offers the advantage of being able to use cheap cuts of meat for slow-cooked succulence.
You can use chicken for this recipe, but it's well worth seeking out guinea fowl in the autumn and winter months as it has a wonderful depth of flavour, here accentuated by Calvados, creme fraiche and apples.
Not much preparation to do here - then this lovely warming casserole cooks happily for an hour in the oven.
A more English take on ossobuco (using beef instead of veal) this sumptuous recipe also includes a very useful recipe for cheat's risotto Milanese, allowing you to rustle up a quick accompaniment to this slow-cooked casserole.
